The Pittsburgh Pirates defeated the Miami Marlins 3-1 Sunday afternoon. Pirate starter Ivan Nova allowed just one hit over six innings. Felipe Rivero saved his second consecutive game. He got the final four outs of both games to help the Bucs earn a series split.
The Pirates host the Colorado Rockies for three games beginning tonight. First pitch is 7:05pm. Pre-game on WISR will be 6:40pm. Jameson Taillon returns from cancer surgery to start tonight.
The Pirates sent rookie Tyler Glasnow to Triple-A Indianapolis over the weekend to make room for Taillon.
